Let’s be honest all of us at one time or another have been guilty of speeding for some reason. Considering that speed laws vary by state and the chances of success in contesting a speeding ticket vary even more by state, the one constant thing is the need for an attorney to contest any speeding.
Here are the reasons to contact an attorney for a speeding ticket case.
It will only be done once or twice in your life (hopefully), while the lawyer will make these times considerably more than we can imagine having to do that. As such, know the questions for the official (or representative) to challenge the fine. They know the judicial system and how to appeal to each judge or magistrate. The most important thing they know is the law.
Knowledge of the Court
Unless you live in a large metropolis (and often even if you do), the local court will be a small place where everyone seems to know everyone. Your attorney has been in front of the judge or Magistrate countless times for different cases and has built at least one professional relationship. Whereas he probably hasn’t been here before, and the judge doesn’t know him at all. Familiarity is essential, and the attorney has it while they don’t.
You Are Serious
The Judge knows that you are paying the lawyer who sends the direct message that you are serious with this ticket. It lets the judge know that you are taking this matter seriously and that you will get their attention. From my experience, those with attorneys earn much more than those without. Quite often, in the disposition, the judge mentions that they take it seriously because they hired an attorney.
You Can Save Money by Spending Money
Lawyers can be expensive, so you have to shop around. For many speeding attorneys making entries is relatively simple than more complex litigation and does not take much of their time. Find an attorney who will do this for a flat fee covering both the initial hearing and that of any appeals work. You will spend the money now, but if your attorney is successful, he or she will save you a lot of money on insurance premiums for years to come.
